  • Kyan Pascal 1.1 ; Kyan Pascal V. 1.1 complete restored by GoodByteXL ; thank you so much GoodByteXL for your help. We really appreciate that! :-)
Please take into account, that the DOS was modified by Kyan! It is not possible to use a normal DOS 2.5 from another disk! The modifications (loading-routines) are moved into $480 up to $6FF. This is mentioned in the document in chapter DOS 2.5, but only there!

Still Missing#

The community with the help of all has made great progress regarding Kyan Pascal. Tom Eckmann, CEO of Kyan Pascal, was so nice to us, by giving Kyan Pascal into PD. To complete Kyan Pascal, we need your help again. The missing list is as follows:

- Kyan Pascal version 1.2 and 1.3
- Programming Utility Toolkit for Kyan Pascal version 1.x
- Advanced Graphics Toolkit for Kyan Pascal version 1.x
- Kyan Pascal version 2.0 and 2.03
- System Utilities Toolkit for Kyan Pascal version 2.x
- Code Optimizer Toolkit for Kyan Pascal version 2.x ; includes the source code for the Runtime Library

Any help of any kind, even just hints or infos to complete the above site is very welcome at any time. We really would appreciate your help. :-)

Credits#

We deeply, deeply thank Tom Eckmann, CEO of Kyan Software, for giving Kyan Pascal into PD. Tom, be sure, you are in our hearts forever, you will never be forgotten! Thank you so much! Further, we thank WASEO from Germany for initiating this project, establishing contact to Tom and doing so much for this project. We thank Kevin Savetz for interviewing Tom and making contact again. We thank the "stay behind task force from Abbuc" for founding some ultra rare (way above 10) parts of this projects. We thank GoodByteXL for scanning all the manuals, preparing them, bringing them into read mode and getting into Kyan Pascal that deep, so we could build this site. We thank Thomas Grasel from RAF for borrowing his Kyan Pascal version, so we could compare it with the other versions. We thank Fred from the Atari museum in the Netherlands for a major, lost to believe contribution in this project.
